Hi Anastasia and Christof, 

I not sure if I know how to increase the verbosity of the output. 
Do you mean adding something to the end of the command line?

Originally, I did not have the command line:
After adding this line and running the code again, I still don't see the information I'm looking for. 

Perhaps I need a specific DMP option like the ones shown below?


Best regards,

Hi Zhi,


In addition to what Christof responded, is your INFO option set to TRUE inside your input file? (i.e., OPTION, INFO = TRUE;

Hi Christof, 

After adding the line
I do get the trajectory file. 

However, I also want to see the trajectory properties output like the picture below.  


How do I get the code to write this information on the (.out) file?

Best regards,

Hi Zhi,

if you add 
to your input file then you should find a file in the directory 'data' containing the trajectory of the reference particle.

Hello OPAL-Team,

I'm currently learning to add a RBend component in OPAL-T. 
The input file is a modified version of the example file. 

I added the following to the input file (from the OPAL manual):

Bend: RBend, ANGLE = 30.0 * Pi / 180.0,
ELEMEDGE = 0.25,
L = 0.5,
GAP = 0.02;

After the simulation finish running, I don't see any output describing the reference trajectory properties. I was expecting this information to be written in the (.out) file.

Please let me know where this information is stored. Thanks!

Best regards,
